Council Powerless to Remove Trump Star from Walk of Fame

The anonymous creator of the fake stars and friends who helped paste them down, calling themselves "The Faction", told THR they spent about $1,000 on the fake stars, which they printed on sheets of floor vinyl.

"If no one peels these off, they could last there for 10 years", he said.

Thursday's star multiplication can be attributed to an anonymous conservative street artist, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, the artist said, "I didn't want to get hit over the head from behind". Recently, on July 25 a man named Austin Clay destroyed Trump's star using a pickaxe.

During the process, the crew initially placed the vinyl stars with a cover to withhold the name, in a bid to avoid any violent onlookers.

After the destruction of Trump's star, the West Hollywood City council voted unanimously to have the star - which has been the focus of vandalism and protests - to be removed.

The stars, however, were peeled up.

Although the city council voted to have the star removed, it was largely a symbolic vote as they have no power to order its removal. The star has been vandalized at least three times since then, including an incident last month in which a pickax-wielding man smashed the star.

The star, which has been repaired, recognized Trump for his work on the reality show 'The Apprentice'.

A member of the cleaning service that deals with daily graffiti and vandalism on the Walk of Fame said, "We started at 5 o'clock in the morning and we've found about 50 stars".
